Angry Council seeks answers for delays
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer After much heated discussion about the delay of the Grove Avenue reconstruction project, the Silver Lake City Council heard that the completion date is set for the second week in November, nearly two months past the original completion date of Sept. 13. City Clerk Kerry Venier said he met with the contractors and utility companies last week and informed the City Council that the utility companies said they would “try to hurry it up.” “But it sounded like we were not much of a priority for them,” Venier added. “And when I asked them about explaining the delay, they said, ‘Just tell people that it rained.’ It’s pretty disappointing since we met with them (the utility companies) in May,” Venier said. He added that R&R talked about getting the road marked to open it up to traffic, and that they would try to get driveways completed. “Have we heard anything from the county on this?” Councilor Pat Fogarty asked. “They are the ones driving us on getting the road marked and open,” Venier said. “From a city standpoint, this is ridiculous. This is ridiculous if the utility companies are keeping us from getting this road done,” Fogarty said. “What’s stopping R&R from getting the road striped and signed? R&R shouldn’t have any excuses to not get that done. The only thing the utility companies are holding up is the sidewalk, right?” Mayor Bruce Bebo said. “Yes, the sidewalk and restoration is left,” Venier said. “Are they getting paid once that is done?” Fogarty asked. “No. There’s still a lot to be done including driveways, black top, signage and marking. And we have a punch list of things to be repaired,” Venier said. “I’d like to see us have the punch list done so they get their money. Our lesson learned here is that we need to put the heat on if we want to get this done,” Bebo said. “If R&R wasn’t fighting the utility companies, why isn’t everything done up until they can’t do anymore?” Fogarty asked. “It is,” Grove Avenue property owner Donovan Holtberg said. “No, it isn’t,” Councilor Eric Nelson said. “There’s striping, the driveways, the curb,” Bebo said. “Why are we afraid to penalize them?” Fogarty asked. “They haven’t reached that point, yet,” Venier said. “Sure they have,” Nelson said. He added that at the last regular Council meeting in September, the engineers said the project was about two weeks behind. “It’s October now,” he added. “The big thing is we’re trying to get it done,” Venier said. “But it’s not getting done. I truly believe R&R and SEH (Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc.) messed up. If I lived on Grove Avenue, I’d be in your office, in your face, every day, Kerry,” Fogarty said. “Why would you be in my face? I’m just the messenger. I can’t do anything. If you want me to go and fine them, I’ll fine them. I don’t serve the residents. I serve the Council,” Venier said. “By the end of this week, if it’s not to the point where they can get everything done before the utility companies come, we start fining them,” Bebo said. He added: “Everybody’s blaming the utility companies, but there’s a heck of a lot of stuff that needs to be done

City budget consistent with last year’s year-to-date data
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer The Silver Lake City Council reviewed year-to-date expenditures and revenues on Monday, and heard the city is “sitting fairly consistent compared to last year,” according to City Clerk Kerry Venier. In 2012, the year-to-date general fund totaled $436,677.99, and 2013 records show a year-to-date total of $431,516.75. The 2013 budget is set at $662,473, and Venier said he doesn’t expect the city to see any big changes “coming up” in the budget. The year-to-date amount of the municipal buildings increased from $5,610.68 in 2012 to $14,216.17 due to improvement projects such as the purchase of new cash registers and installation of a camera system. Mayor Bruce Bebo also noted a nearly $8,000 increase in the police department fund. In 2012, the year-to-date amount was $104,543.38, and in 2013, records show $112,099.97. Venier said the police department needs to watch its fuel costs, “but is otherwise pretty good.” Expenditures are down in the ambulance fund, from $73,967.09 in 2012 to $61,768.78 year-to-date. “The ambulance department has really slowed down in the last month. We’ve seen huge drop-offs in our runs,” Venier said. He said that while the dropoffs keep expenditures down, “it also keeps revenues down.” In the fire department fund, Venier said he suspected the 2013 year-to-date totals to be over budget, “but the plan of

County officials outline courthouse project, costs for township officers
By Lori Copler Staff Writer McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann and County Board Chair Paul Wright outlined the differences between a $22.75 million jail expansion project to the current $7 million proposal to township officials at their annual McLeod County Association of Townships meeting Sept. 30. Wright, who wasn’t on the County Board when it proposed and subsequently dropped the 2007 project, said the $22.75 proposal “was supposed to be a money maker for the county.” The previous proposal would have included a significant enlargement of the jail, up to 150 beds. The goal, Wright said, was to lease those beds to other facilities which were overcrowded. But Wright said a lot of

other counties had the same idea, and undertook some large expansion projects. “And then the economy took a dive,” said Wright. The McLeod County Board of Commissioners voted in October 2007 to abandon the proposal. The current project would
add about 15 beds to the jail’s current 35, for a total of 50, said Rehmann. The goal of the project is to save the county money, not make money, Wright added. Currently, the county spends

Tickets are available at the door. that’s not the utility companies’ fault. Why don’t residents have access to driveways, yet?” Bebo said. “Because R&R said ‘no,’” Venier said. “So now they’re going to do it, though?” Bebo asked. “Because we’ve started talking about fines,” Venier said. Bebo said the City Council needs to make a list of what “absolutely” needs to get done. “Whatever can’t be done because of utilities, their hands are tied, but the rest is just BS,” Bebo said. “Yes, they are way behind,” Venier said. “The contract is there for a reason. I understand what Bruce is saying, but something’s gotta get done,” Fogarty said. “As a Council, how do we want to proceed? I’d like to see something in writing from the city about what’s going to get done,” Bebo said. Bebo said that if the City Council is talking about imposing fines, “we better get a paper trail going or we’re just wasting our breath.” “We have a paper trail. SEH has been documenting everything,” Venier said. “We need to get that from them,” Nelson said. “What happens to quality when you hammer them like that?” Holtberg asked. “That’s what I was worried about, too, especially since they were the lowest bid,” Nelson said. “We’re obligated to take the lowest bid,” Venier said. “They still have to follow specifications,” Bebo said. Holtberg asked if the Council expressed its “displeasure” with the utility companies and the contractors. “That’s what I wondered about the county involvement. Aren’t they upset?” Fogarty said. “Here’s the problem. The county wants it opened up, but they don’t care about getting it sodded or getting the driveways done, or about the rest of our punch list,” Bebo said. “I want the road open, but I want it done right,” Fogarty said. Venier told the Council that CenturyLink was the only utility company left that has work to do. “There’s been a lot of fingerpointing going on,” Venier said. “If it’s not done by this week, are you suggesting we have a special meeting?” Nelson asked. Venier said they couldn’t schedule one until after the end of the week if the work was not finished. The Council made a list of projects to be completed before it starts talking fines, including getting the roads marked, the rip-rap finished, finishing the driveways, signage, working on the culvert on Highway 7, the gate valve on Center Street, the school fence and mailboxes installed, and the approaches finished. Venier said he would talk with SEH about the punch list. “And if seven out of these eight items aren’t finished, then we’ll have a special meeting to discuss fines,” Nelson said.

Health care seminar Oct. 16
The Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting an informal presentation on health care reform at the Glencoe City Center on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., in the senior room. Coffee and pastries will be provided. Chamber member Terry Jones, of Professional Insurance Providers, will present the free informational seminar and will address rules that apply to employers with less than 50 employees.
Continued from page 1 the department was to spend down their fund balance. It was planned and needed,” Venier said. He noted an increase in the water fund from $48,770.86 in 2012 to $80,011.68 year-todate. “I’m unsure of why that is so high, and I’ll look into it,” Venier said. In revenues, the Municipal Liquor Store stood out with nearly a $100,000 decrease from the 2012 year-to-date report. “The revenues are down quite a bit at the liquor store, but in fairness, the 2013 yearto-date numbers do not include August and September revenues, and the 2012 report did. But the totals from those months won’t get up to $100,000, so we will still see a decrease in the liquor store revenues,” Venier said. He added: “This is an area where Jon (Jerabek) is really going to have to operate a tight ship until the end of the year.” “All in all, there is nothing alarming to report in the budget. I foresee no emergency spending,” Venier said. In other matters, the City Council: • Heard totals for building permits is down 20 percent from 2012. Scott Qualle, of MNSPECT, Inc. in Waconia, presented the Council with a quarterly comparison of 2013 and 2012 totals. In 2012, Silver Lake saw $159,104 in commercial and residential building permit valuation, and for 2013, valuation is at $123,507.42. Venier said residential permit requests “might be down due to the fact we have a lot of construction happening.” • Approved the annual review for Venier to retain with longevity pay.

Jail Continued from page 1
about $115,000 to $145,000 annually to board inmates in other facilities when the local jail is at capacity. Rehmann said the county could add the additional 15 beds without hiring more staff; however, he added, the county will have more expense for food, medical services and utilities, at an estimated $16,000 to $18,000 annually. “We know we won’t save the entire amount of boarding costs,” said Rehmann, but the county is hoping to save about $100,000 annually. Rehmann also handed out a summary of the project, which will include: • A 5,600-square-foot addition to the southeast corner of the courthouse that will include an entry, restrooms, weapons screening, sheriff’s office and waiting space; • A reorganization of the sheriff’s office lobby for access from the new entry and security. The lobby will then have 24-hour access. • Relocate the jail booking area to create safer space and operational improvements. • Renovate 5,000 square feet of jail space for housing, programs, medical and storage. • A 6,000-square-foot addition to the jail for added housing, storage space, program space and offices. • An addition of 6,000 square feet to the jail for a vehicle sallyport, pre-booking, a kitchen and video visiting. About $5 million of the $7 million total cost, which includes other security improvements in the courthouse, will be for the jail improvements, Rehmann said. Annamarie Tudhope, longtime publisher of the Glencoe Enterprise, had bequeathed the bulk of her estate — between $3.8 and $4 million — to McLeod County for the express purpose of building a new jail. If the County Board decides to proceed with the project, it will ask County Attorney Mike Junge to approach the probate court to see if the estate can be released for funding the project. Wright also said that the proposal, if built, “should fill our needs for at least the next 20 years.” The County Board has set Oct. 22 as the date on which it will decide if it will continue its pursuit of the project and ask Junge to approach the court about the Tudhope estate.

It was ‘world series’ of dairy events
After a week in Madison, Wis. at the “world series” of dairy events, otherwise known as the World Dairy Expo, I’m back home in Minnesota with a few blisters, a belly full of cheese, several cow souvenirs, a stack of business cards from some of the “big wigs” in the dairy industry, and another year of memories. Last Sunday, I left with Bonnie Mohr and crew for my second year at the great cow celebration. I was looking forward to a week of meeting new people, seeing the gorgeous, groomed cows stroll through the gigantic coliseum with their handlers, eating grilled cheese sandwiches, flavored cheese curds, fresh, organic butter and butter pecan ice cream, and hanging out with Bonnie, one of the most notable dairy celebrities in the business. Not only does the World Dairy Expo consist of five busy days of selling art, taking orders, trying new food, and seeing cow shows, but each night is booked with “wineand-dine” events to meet other expo exhibitors and leaders of the dairy world. On Wednesday night, we got to attend a “Women in Dairy” business meet and greet at Vintage Brewing Company in Madison, a lovely, unique restaurant and microbrewery outfitted in antique furniture and lanterns. There, I got to indulge in their gourmet macaroni ‘n’ cheese, “Big Sky” sliders (mini hamburgers piled with fried onions, bacon, cheddar cheese and barbeque sauce), baguettes topped with brie cheese and pear slices, and a tall, delightful glass of roscato wine, and I got to meet “Dairy Carrie,” another dairy celebrity in the business who

blogs about life on the farm. Dairy Carrie also works for the company Udder Comfort, and introduced me to my new favorite spa product, Udder Comfort lotion, which is actually supposed to be used to soften and sooth cow udders, but I found it works fantastic for sore feet and dry hands. It’s made with essential oils and menthol, so it’s perfectly good for human feet, too, right? On Friday of the week, we took part in the annual World Classic cow sale, which is my favorite event of the entire celebration. The cow sale is located in the arena of the coliseum, which is covered in colored shavings each year to coordinate with the theme of expo. This year’s expo theme was “Center of the Dairy Universe,” and the shavings were purple, so it was a magical sight during the opening ceremony; they glowed after the lights were dimmed and the spotlights shone on the handlers, cows, auctioneers, and singers during “O Canada” and the “Star-Spangled Banner.” For the cow sale, a stage is set in the center of the arena, and resembles a boxing ring with red ropes hanging corner to corner. A large, long table draped in black material sits behind the ring and a tall, black velvet stage curtain hangs behind the table, setting the scene for the World Classic. After the national anthems were sung, a group of men dressed in white, buttoned-up shirts, black dress pants, and bow ties brought out trays of gourmet cupcakes, lit with candles, for all us spectators (and bidders to enjoy), and reentered the ring to begin their duties as “bid-identifiers.” As a “bid-identifier,” the men watch the crowd for waving hands or nodding heads and shout out “BAGHHH!” when a new bid on a calf or cow is placed. It’s quite entertaining to hear the guttural call in the midst of the auctioneer’s dynamic voice “Ten-thousandand-five-hundred-Can-I-get-el even-thousand?” I must admit I had a difficult time keeping my arms and hands next to my body during the sale. I never realized I was so animated with gestures when talking with friends and other people until I almost bought a red and white Holstein calf for $100,000! Yikes! I don’t think Mom would have approved of that, but Dad might have supported the idea. But he would agree I should spend what money I have investing in a muffler or even a new(er) vehicle, and not an animal. I think we can all support that idea.

Letter to the Editor Nuclear power needed for 21st century
To the Editor: Recently, the USS Minnesota stealth nuclear attack submarine was commissioned. It is a high-tech marvel and wizardry, powered by an ultraefficient nuclear reactor. The nuclear material that powers the submarine is about the size of a human fist. It will power the submarine for over 35 years. Yes, you read that correctly, 35 years. Many people are unaware of the tremendous technological advancements in efficiency for nuclear energy. In addition, the nuclear waste currently stored in the U.S. can now be reprocessed under current technology to utilize more than 90 percent, leaving less than 10 percent of the nuclear waste to remain. Unfortunately, our nation has laws against reprocessing nuclear waste. President Carter passed this law in the late 1970s. Republicans generally support building new nuclear power plants because they recognize the advancements in technology for nuclear power and waste. Generally, the Democrats in our state and nation have failed to recognize technological advancements in dealing with nuclear power waste and have refused to support the repeal of these laws. Instead, Democrats, controlled by the radical extremist environmentalist movement, have supported the expensive agenda of wind turbines and solar power, which are only being built as a result of government mandates and huge subsidies per megawatt hour. As an example, natural gas receives a subsidy of 25 cents per megawatt hour. In contrast, wind turbines receive a government subsidy of over $23.37 per megawatt hour (source: Minnesota REA). New proposals by the Federal EPA and recently passed Minnesota solar mandates under Democrat leadership will raise the cost of electricity even higher. The radical environmentalists have also influenced some in the Republican Party, but the majority opposes these energy boondoggles, as does the Republican platform. Modern nuclear power is environmentally safe and soon we will be able to reprocess 99 percent or all of our nuclear waste. American ingenuity has always solved environmental problems when not encumbered by government ignorance. Informed and activated citizens can be influential, as they demand that legislators vote to repeal the nuclear power plant ban in Minnesota and the federal ban on reprocessing nuclear waste. Many readers will fondly remember the advertising jingle: “Electricity is penny cheap from NSP to you.” With the advancements of modern technology, electricity could once again be penny cheap and this could fuel an economic recovery that would create a prosperous future for our children and grandchildren. Remember, our country was founded on limited government because our founding fathers realized that whenever government becomes overly involved in almost any thing, it creates waste, fraud, abuse and higher costs.

Spring Lake Park slips past GSL 21-20
By Josh Randt Sports Editor A competitive game between two like teams took place underneath the lights and rain at Stevens Seminary Field Friday night. Glencoe-Silver Lake hosted the Spring Lake Park Panthers (Class AAAAA) and nearly came out on top against a team with a bevy of talented running backs. SLP scored first when Richie Toweh got loose for a 24-yard score with 6:01 left in the first quarter, putting his team up 70 with the extra point. Starting from their own 35yard line, GSL answered back in just three minutes and 17 seconds, when Jake Stuedemann got around the right side of the line, scoring a 32-yard touchdown. The score was evened at 7-7 after the extra point. GSL had a chance to take an early lead when Bennett Bielke intercepted Austin Swenson's pass on the second play of SLP's ensuing drive, which he returned 17 yards to the SLP 48. “I had the outside guy and he just overthrew him,” Bielke said of the clutch play. “It (the ball) kind of got caught up in the lights a little bit, so I had to make an adjustment. He just kind of overthrew it and I took it down the field.” But the GSL offense could not capitalize, turning the ball over on downs early in the second half on the SLP 29-yard line after getting stuffed on fourth-and-one. The teams went into halftime with GSL in front 14-13 as the rain started to come down. Both offenses were kept in check in a third quarter that resulted in no scoring. The game got interesting in the fourth quarter, as SLP went up 21-14 when Ejodamen Ejiya scored with a little over eight minutes remaining in the game. A steady dose of Stuedemann and Dalton Clouse drove GSL down to the SLP 5-yard line, where Stuedemann scored his second touchdown of the evening. Deciding to go for the win with a two-point conversion, quarterback Keaton Anderson rolled to his left after a play-action fake. Tanner Grack was open in the end zone, but the pass bounced off his chest with a defender nearby, and GSL lost as the score remained 2120. “We wanted to go for the win,” head coach Scott Tschimperle said of going for two instead of kicking the extra point. “Dominic’s (Bondhus) leg was kind of hurting. He got ran into on the last extra point ... I think we had our best play that we called on the two point conversion. We had enough misdirection going on to throw off the defense, but we just came up a little short.” Tschimperle did say he’s “proud of the way our kids played. I thought we held our own against them.” One area he said the team could improve upon is short yardage situations. “After Bennett’s (Bielke) interception, they stuffed us on fourth-and-one,” Tschimperle said. “We should never not get a fourth-and-one in my opinion.” Waconia comes to town this week for homecoming after notching its first win of the season last week with a 17-10 win over Holy Family. Tschimperle said his team wants the No. 1 seed come sections, and knows that in order to attain that, it’ll have to win out the rest of the season. “The kids want that No. 1 seed, because there’s such an advantage not having to play on that Tuesday,” Tschimperle said. “They want that Wright County Conference championship, and they know they’ve got to win outright to get it.” GSL currently sits atop the WCC’s West Division with a 30 conference record, and are 42 overall with only a game against Dassel-Cokato remaining on the conference schedule. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Stevens Seminary Stadium. This year’s Panther Association Hall of Fame recipients will be honored at halftime.

Panthers beat Girls’ soccer wins first Cardinals in 5 game of the season 3-0
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Lady Panthers tested their endurance last week, going to five sets at Hutchinson on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and again the following Thursday hosting the Annandale Cardinals. The Tigers got the better of Glencoe-Silver Lake, closing out set five 15-8 after the Panthers rallied to win sets three and four. Highlighting the match was senior Steph Klockmann notching her 100th career ace block, and head coach Lori Schwirtz receiving a yellow card (warning) in the fifth set for arguing a call. GSL took that fire and tenacity into Thursday, which saw a full crowd clad in pink for senior night and “Dig Pink,” a fundraiser for breast cancer patients, while hosting Annandale. In the first two sets the Lady Panthers made it look easy, winning 25-15 and 25-18, but dropped the next two as Annandale fought its way back. Up 14-7 in set five, Schwirtz brought in senior Amanda Meyer to serve for the winning point. Meyer sent the ball over the left side of the net directly at one of Annandale’s players, who was unsure of how to handle the serve. She attempted to duck at the last second, but was hit in the shoulder, giving GSL the win as the ball landed out of bounds. “I better not mess up!” Meyer said of her thoughts before that serve. “I wanted to finish it off, and it was a good way to go. It felt great.” Meyer said the team learned to “never give up and just keep fighting,” when a team fights back like Annandale. “We have the drive, we just have to prove it.” It’s been said that adversity builds character, and the game against the Cardinals offered plenty of opportunities, but Schwirtz joked that “adversity gives their coach wrinkles!” “No, that was really good for our club because we need to play to win and not to lose,” which Schwirtz said her girls accomplished in the fifth set. “Hopefully it just gives us a little more confidence to know that it’s not over after two games; you have to win three sets.” GSL now takes to the road this week, traveling to New London-Spicer on Tuesday, Oct. 8, before visiting Litchfield for its Wright County Conference finale on Thursday, Oct. 10. By Josh Randt Sports Editor Despite losing 7-0 to Holy Family last Thursday, senior night for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team proved to be a night to remember for every member of the team. The Panthers earned their first win of the season with a 3-0 shutout of the Worthington Trojans on Tuesday, Oct. 1. GSL came out motivated and looking to score, which it did a little over one minute into the game when Keisha Prafke found the twine from 10 yards out. By the time the first half ended, the Panthers had all three goals, with Macy Rhodes and Emily Thalmann scoring within two minutes of each other. Thalmann’s came with 1:23 remaining in the first half. The strong start did not, however, immediately carry over to the second half, as the Trojans came out with a lot of energy and physical play. But the Panther defense picked up where the offense left off, especially goalie Zoe Christensen who had some key saves late in the game. When Kay Wilson counted down the final seconds of the game, the girls’ sideline erupted with a number of emotions. Tears flowed down smil-

Others simply jumped up and down, flailing limbs in every direction while shouting, “We did it!” “I couldn’t have asked for a better team to play with, and getting the win tonight just made it that much greater,” a teary-eyed Frances Zuniga said after the game. “I’m not going to remember all the losses. I’m just going to remember this game and how hard all the girls played for me

and Yodee (Rivera).” Before the game, Rivera said the team took a half an hour to “get all the emotions out." “Everybody just cried and said their farewells before we got to play on this field one last time,” Rivera said. “This win was long overdue, and I’m really glad that we pulled it together today for senior night. Those girls said they were going to do it for us, and they kept their word. I’m really proud of my ladies.” In her seventh year as a varsity player, Rivera said this group of girls is “the best GSL Panther team to go through this school.” The win may not look like much on on paper, but head coach Zach Otto-Fisher said it will definitely help section seedings with Worthington in the same section. “It helps from maybe playing that No. 2 seed, to maybe now playing the No. 3 seed,” Otto-Fisher said. “That’s huge when you have 15 teams in the section.” GSL outshot Worthington 32-14, the first time that’s happened all season. Facing 10-5-1 Albert Lea on Tuesday, Oct. 8, the girls will need to replicate such a performance with the season on the line.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
We’ll enjoy some great above-average fall weather this week as summer has a tough time letting go. The average highs for this time of year should be closer to 60, but early to midweek we should be in the 70s. A storm system will move at us towards the end of the work week, but it looks to be taking aim at the Dakotas. We could see some showers and thunder as the storm moves close by, but it shouldn’t be an all-day washout like we had this past weekend. Temperatures cool a bit for the weekend with highs closer to average both days. Fall is a big transition period weather-wise and anything can happen, but the weekend storm brought some amazing things. On one side there were tornadoes and severe weather, and on the backside in the Dakotas as much as 20 inches of snow was reported! I do actually enjoy snow and winter, but maybe not yet, please. Have a great week, all. The extended looks to keep things cooler early next week as Canada opens its doors behind the Friday storm. Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 51-57; clear. Thursday — Highs 70-76; lows 52-58; clear. Friday — Highs 68-74; lows 50-56; partly cloudy/shower or thunder. Saturday — Highs 60-67; lows 39-46; partly cloudy. Sunday — Highs 56-63; mostly clear. Weather Quiz: How rare are fall outbreaks of tornadoes in the upper Midwest? Answer to last week’s question: How do averages compare from the start of the month to the end? The average high/low to begin the month is 65/45 degrees. As we head towards Halloween, it’s closer to 51/34. The winter transition has begun. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!
